An Easter Sunday egg hunt and lunch at Hartsfield Manor raised funds for George and the Giant Pledge, earlier this month.
Eggs were hidden at ten different points around the hotel’s Betchworth grounds for children to find, with a prize egg at the end. A bouncy castle and face painter added to the fun, with hot drinks and cakes for the grown-ups.
Hotel staff donned bunny ears while Monica, who normally works in the restaurant, became the Easter Bunny, encouraging children along in their search.
Hartsfield Manor and its sister hotel Reigate Manor have now raised nearly £8,000 for George and the Giant Pledge, the campaign set up by the parents of local boy George Woodall, who has been receiving cancer treatment. Money raised goes to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Hotel group general manager Giles Thomas said:
“We’ve got to know the Woodall family over the last year and have really enjoyed hosting some successful events to help them reach their £1million target.
Last year our family fun day was a phenomenal success and our sister hotel, Reigate Manor have hosted two fantastic quiz nights.”
With another quiz night at Reigate Manor on 11 May, and this year’s Family Fun Day at Hartsfield Manor on 1 July, the hotels hope to have soon raised more than £10,000 for George and the Giant Pledge.
